I have been fortunate in that I have been able to work out at pretty much the same intensity as before I got CIDP. I will tell you that my neurologist has cautioned me a number of times to take it easy, because overdoing it could worsen my condition. I suggest you discuss the issue with your doctor. No two people with CIDP are exactly the same. Do take care to much sure you get sufficient rest. Your body needs to marshal its resources to fight this disease. When you have the energy, an appropriate exercise program will be extremely helpful — physically AND mentally.
